Chiropractic is not a replacement for painkilling drugs (or a quick fix relief).
It is a natural way to stimulate your body to heal itself and this may take time.
Chiropractic is not dangerous. Your chiropractor has trained for over 5 years to use the safest and gentlest techniques available.
Chiropractic is not unconventional. It is scientific and now a mainstream part of healthcare around the world. Thousands of people use chiropractors every day as a part of a good health regime.
Massage therapy helps us to relax and can help ease aches and pains. It helps trigger the release of the body's natural painkillers and gives a general sense of contentment.
Massage is a general term - you may also come across the terms Swedish massage, sports massage and remedial massage. This list is not exhaustive; other forms of massage exist. Each type of massage has its own specific methods.
Sports and Remdial Massage
Sports Massage can be used to aid recovery from injury, an event, or as part of a long term training programme. It's not just for elite athletes or the average club player, but can be used by anyone with a muscular injury.
It is a form of massage which focuses on muscle systems used in activity. The techniques used can aid reduction of soreness and help enhance power, endurance and flexibility.
The Graston Technique is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilisation that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The Technique utilises specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
The Kinesio Taping Method involves taping over and around muscles in order to assist and give support or to prevent over-contraction.
Acupuncture (Available only in Mansfield)
At the Mansfield Clinic, we offer acupuncture – a tried and tested system of medicine. The Chinese and other eastern cultures have been using acupuncture to restore, promote and maintain good health for thousands of years.
It involves inserting ultra fine needles at chosen points in the body, and the treatment is aimed at the root causes of the condition, as well as the symptoms.
